    Let's say you have a show worthy cockerel and pullet.

    Do you recommend showing as individuals, or as a pair?

    What can you tell me about judging pairs?

    How often do you all show pairs, and in your opinion, is it more or less stress on the brids?

    There generally is not an entry for pairs. Trios, however there is. The two girls need to be as identical as possible. All three birds must be in the same age class.

    I don't like showing in pairs because the males are too absorbed in breeding and the females are more absorbed in getting away from the male...Neither pose well.
